Desert Heat, Desert Cold
By Charlie Steel

This collection of stories takes place on our western frontier. They tell of bold folks, good and bad, clashing against each other, against the elements--extreme heat and cold, against poisonous snakes, huge bears, Indians, deserts and mountains. These stories paint word pictures triggering all the senses; the sound of coyotes; the smell of death; the taste of a cool breeze; the pain of hot sand and a hot bullet; the beautiful colors of dawn.

These are lifelike stories where some of the good and strong people don’t survive. Others are given second chances by the generosity of strangers who, like themselves, are in search of a dream on the western edge of our young country in the 1800’s.
